2018 G.S.M.
Angela Osborne x Folded Hills Library Wine

"There's a lot of appealing subtlety to enjoy in this blend... starting with soft strawberries, crumbled hibiscus and white sage on the nose. The palate's buoyant flavors of raspberry and cranberry are sprinkled with dried sage and chaparral shrub, which taste so much like the Santa Ynez Mountains

This was Folded Hills first ever G.S.M. blend and we are so excited to share it with you! This wine is a celebration of friendship and family, with a blend highlighting the beauty and spice of life.

Our 2018 G.S.M. is made from a selection of the finest Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, including our own Folded Hills Estate. Each site is meticulously farmed to organic and/or biodynamic standards. Winemaker Angela Osborne works with growers to choose the optimum picking times to capture both freshness and flavor, then makes the wine in an honest and time-honored way.

After harvest, the fruit is carefully de-stemmed. In order to add another layer of spice and structure, a portion of whole cluster is retained. The vintage and vineyard guide the choice on whether or not to include whole cluster into the fermentation. Angela walks the sites before harvest and chews on stems in the vineyard and again in the winery to check their health and flavor for that year. Al fermentation happens naturally with ambient yeast, and the fruit is foot- trod until fermentation is complete. To preserve freshness and vibrancy, the wine is aged for 11 months in neutral French oak barrels.

Beautiful aromatics with notes of purple plum, freshly steeped black tea, and red cherry, with a hint of strawberry shortcake. Medium-bodied, juicy, lively style.

Mostly destemmed and aged in neutral oak, it offers pretty Bing cherry, cranberry, and sappy herb notes in its medium-bodied, juicy, lively style.
